Threat to suspend licences follows teen’s death in Surrey

Four-year sentence for ‘traumatizing’ crime

Blood leads to would-be robber

Party-bus operators warned Jeff Nagel

A man who has admitted he entered South Surrey’s South Point Pub last year wearing a mask and waving a loaded pistol will serve another three years in jail for the crime. Robbie Lee Morris was handed a four-year sentence in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster last month by Justice Robert Crawford, after pleading guilty to possession of a loaded, restricted and unlicensed firearm. Crawford credited Morris one year for time served. Crawford noted the New Year’s Day incident, in which shots were fired, had “traumatized” one participant and could have had tragic results. Fortunately, he said, Morris was on the receiving end of the “donnybrook” that ensued when he walked in on a male and female employee cleaning up after New Year’s celebrations in the early hours of Jan. 1. The female employee’s boyfriend was also in the pub at the time, Crawford said, and “threw himself ” at Morris, who may have been under the effects of alcohol. Although shots were fired, Crawford said, Morris appeared to have been disarmed in the subsequent scrap. In addition, Morris was punched, gouged in the eye and smashed over the head with a bar stool, and it was his blood that marked his path when he fled from the pub and over a nearby fence. DNA was matched with federal databank records which led directly to Morris, who has two prior convictions for robbery. He was arrested in June 2012. › see page 2

Transportation Minister Mary Polak says party-bus operators in B.C. have been warned they must obey laws that ban liquor consumption by their passengers or face costly licence suspensions. But at the same time, Polak says the province is reviewing the current regulations to check whether they still make sense. A commercial vehicle like a limousine or a bus is considered a public place in B.C. so boozy revellers on board are drinking in public contrary to the Liquor Control and Licensing Act and can be subject to a $230 fine and liquor pour-outs. Any drinking in a moving vehicle is also against the Motor Vehicle Act and is a violation of the operators’ licences under the PassenMary Polak ger Transportation Act. transportation “I have made it very clear minister to the operators I have absolutely no difficulty pulling their licences if it’s found any one of them is not in compliance,” Polak said. That message was delivered to operators at a meeting Thursday by officials of B.C.’s Passenger Transportation Board. It comes several weeks after 16-year-old Ernest Azoadam died after riding on a party bus where alcohol was plentiful, despite operator claims it doesn’t permit alcohol or drugs. Police were called Feb. 15 to a gas station in east Newton, where the Vancouver Island student was found unresponsive. Stretch SUVs or buses are often outfitted with nightclub lighting and may act as rolling parties, particularly for those under age, rather than deluxe transportation to an actual event. “It’s kind of tough to swallow that (operators) are saying ‘Look it’s not our fault’ when their advertisements in many cases imply alcohol is going to be part of the celebration these folks are going to be paying for,” Polak › see page 2

Time for broader review: Polak › from page 1 said. “It’s very troubling.” She said her immediate concern is underage drinking by teens and the associated risks, particularly as grad-celebration season approaches. The party-bus business isn’t a big industry, but Polak said it’s growing and it’s time for a broader review of how the laws apply and whether changes are justified. Legalization of alcohol use on limousines or party buses –  strictly for adults –  is one option that might be considered, she said. “Is there any benefit?” she asked. “I don’t know the answer but it’s a question worth asking.” Asked whether the province’s shift to tougher roadside administrative penalties for impaired driving, rather than criminal prosecution, may have fueled the industry, Polak said she doesn’t think so. “This industry has been growing prior to the 0.05 (blood-alcohol level) legislation and the changes that went with that,” she said. “I

think it’s more a reflection of society’s ideals around alcohol and their own decisions on what’s appropriate and what isn’t.” A provincial review of other jurisdictions found no consistent or obvious approach to regulating party buses elsewhere.

Balancing that, he said, had been a series of prior convictions dating back years. In imposing a sentence, Crawford noted that Canada, unlike its neighbour “to the south of the 49th parallel,” has a very restrictive view on guns “particularly to guns and their use in any criminal behaviour.” Crawford cited the deterrent effect as one of the reasons a jail sentence was warranted, and waived the customary victim-fine surcharge due to a plea from Morris’ lawyer, who cited financial hardship.

Compliance noted in sentence › from page 1 In Morris’ favour, Crawford said, was the fact that he had been “co-operative and compliant” when arrested, and had been a model prisoner over months he had spent in pre-trial custody. It also appears that Morris had, with the support of family, “somewhat righted his ship” between the incident and his arrest, Crawford said. He found work on the waterfront, and was receiving methadone treatment for a heroin addiction, Crawford added.

try’s highest court, the Supreme Court of Canada. “This journey has taken almost five years, which is longer than my daughter was alive,” Michael Middelaer, Alexa’s father, said outside the courtroom. He called the appeal yet another step in the “realm of the ridiculous,” but said that the family is committed to seeing the legal process to its conclusion. As for the Christmas video, Middelaer didn’t think it was unduly influential to the process. “The fact of the matter is, that video was brought in by our family to make the courts and society recognize what we are discussing – we’re discussing the loss of a child,” he said. Berner’s previous appeals of her conviction – to the B.C. Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of

Canada – were both dismissed. Berner’s lawyers had argued the trial judge had erred in finding the destruction of Berner’s Oldsmobile by ICBC, before the defence could have it independently inspected for mechanical defects, didn’t infringe on her right to make a full defence. They also argued Berner was found guilty despite a lack of evidence of impairment. On May 17, 2008, four-year-old Alexa – who attended preschool in Crescent Beach – was feeding a horse in Ladner, when Berner struck and killed her. Alexa’s aunt was also seriously injured. Berner was sentenced to two-anda-half years in prison and banned from driving for five years. Up until the morning of last week’s hearing – when she was required to turn herself in – she had served just days in custody, having been out on bail.

Cheaper flights driving traffic south, poll finds

Travellers choosing U.S. airports Jeff Nagel Black Press

A new poll shows half of Lower Mainland air travellers recently drove to the U.S. to catch a cheaper flight instead of using a B.C. airport. The Insights West online survey found 51 per cent of respondents who flew anywhere in the last two years did so at least once by driving across the border to airports like Bellingham or Seattle. “It was more than I expected,” Insights West senior vicepresident Catherine Dawson said. She said the trend seems to be growing, with 23 per cent saying they cross the line more often to fly now than they did three years ago, compared to six per cent who said they do it less ❝Is the Canadian air often. Lower prices offered out industry ever of U.S. airports were the going to be overwhelming reason, competitive in listed as an important the way U.S. factor by 97 per cent of airlines are?❞ those polled, far ahead of considerations like airline Catherine Dawson preference, ease of border Insights West crossing or whether they have friends or family across the line where they can stay or park their car. Dawson said the 49 per cent who stuck to Canadian airports would include some who didn’t have a choice because they were flying to smaller B.C. towns not served by U.S. airports. Had those been factored out, she said, it might well be that a clear majority of Lower Mainland flyers with an option to fly via a U.S. airport are making that choice.

Port of Bellingham photo

Bellingham International Airport has become popular among Lower Mainland air travellers, as cheaper prices drive customers south. The poll found most Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley flyers using U.S. airports were heading to U.S. destinations, while 19 per cent were bound for other international cities. But one finding Dawson called “very surprising” is that seven per cent were crossing the line to take short flights of less than three hours to Canadian destinations and six per cent were taking longer flights back into Canada. Dawson said the cost of flights is the “prime motivator” and air travellers polled were quick to blame both the airlines and

the federal government but not themselves for using U.S. carriers. Fully 97 per cent agreed, 72 per cent strongly, that Canadian airlines need to improve their pricing if they want to prevent Canadians from driving to U.S. airports. They also cited higher taxes and fees adding to Canadian ticket prices. Dawson doubted whether that majority view is logical. “Is the Canadian air industry ever going to be competitive in the way U.S. airlines are? I’m not sure they can. It sort of calls

into question whether Canadians are being realistic or not.” Insights West surveyed 450 Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley residents, and focused on the 77 per cent of local residents who took a flight of any kind in the last two years. For more details on the poll, visit www. insightswest.com The findings come on the heels of a February poll on cross-border shopping trends that found a large majority of the Lower Mainland’s residents regularly shop in the U.S.

A NEW WAY TO HEAR...

Three per cent annual increase still proceeding

Property-tax boost axed Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink won’t add a temporary property tax increase of $23 per average home that had previously been approved and was to remain in place for this year and next year. Area mayors had OK’d the time-limited tax hike in 2011 as a backup measure in case new funding sources from the province didn’t materialize, although they fully expected Victoria would deliver. When that didn’t happen, mayors last year indicated by a nonbinding vote that they wanted to scrap the tax hike, which would have generated an extra $60 million in property tax over 2013 and 2014. TransLink initially warned last summer that removal of the tax could trigger deep service cuts or project cancellations, because it was already struggling with revenue shortfalls, notably a drop in fuel tax collected. Mayors countered late in the fall, vowing to axe the tax increase and blame the province for any service cuts that ensued if it refused to grant a new revenue source by February.

New funding for TransLink won’t come via a property-tax boost, it was announced recently. None was forthcoming but TransLink’s board has now agreed to remove the increase, saying enough offsetting money has now been saved through cost cutting. Mayors in Langley, Surrey and White Rock had previously opposed eliminating the property tax hike, fearing that might torpedo the new Highway 1 express bus over the Port Mann Bridge and King George Boulevard B-Line. Those projects are

Cloverdale father claimed he was attacked at baseball game

Assault case thrown out Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A Cloverdale father’s claim that he was assaulted by another dad at a peewee baseball game has been dismissed by a B.C. Supreme Court justice. The incident happened during a boy’s game in Cloverdale’s Greenaway Park in May 2011. According to court documents, David Wheeler’s youngest son was scheduled to umpire a game in which one of Benoit Charland’s sons was playing, but upon arriving late, Charland told the boy to go home. When he went home upset, Wheeler went to the field to talk to Charland. During the conversation, a fight began, during which Charland claimed Wheeler assaulted him, the judgment states. Wheeler, however, said Charland attacked him first and that he acted in self-

defence. An attending police officer deemed the fight consensual. Charland, 48, ended up suing Wheeler and the Cloverdale Minor Baseball Association, but the claim against the association was dropped before the trial. At the trial last fall, Charland didn’t deny he had sent Wheeler’s son home, but testified didn’t want to speak with Wheeler because he was sitting eating a meal. He said he politely asked Wheeler to wait, but that Wheeler called him an obscene name. He said Wheeler became more heated and when Charland finally did start to get up, Wheeler punched him in the eye. The pair then grappled on the grass before being separated. Charland claimed he also suffered a contused kidney as a result of Wheeler kicking him – something he never told police

– and that he was unable to work as a painting contractor for about a month because of his injuries. He said prior to the fight, he told Wheeler “I’ll do you later,” which he said meant “I will meet you later.” Wheeler testified he did not go to the ballpark to fight, but to resolve the situation in hopes Charland would talk to his upset son. As he walked away, he heard Charland say “I’ll do you later,” and when he turned around, Charland came at him with his arms out and he reacted out of fear and threw a punch. In a March 20 decision, Madam Justice Jeanne Watchuk determined neither man was the victim and that the scrap between the two dads was consensual. Watchuk awarded no damages to either party, but said Wheeler was entitled to court costs.

Don’t put tunnel plans back on the shelf

T

he provincial government this month released its five options to replace the aging and woefully inadequate George Massey Tunnel. The options ranged from building new crossings both over and under the Fraser River, to doing nothing at all. Given the age of the tunnel, its seismic safety issues and the bottleneck it creates, doing nothing is not an option. The George Massey Tunnel needs to go, and residents and motorists alike need something better in its place, preferably an option that includes mass transit. Metro Vancouver projects Surrey and White Rock’s population will grow by more than 75 per cent over the next 30 years. The population of areas such as Delta are projected to increase by 30 per cent over that span. New residents means new commuters, and as anyone who has spent hours stuck in tunnel gridlock knows, the current Highway 99 crossing is not good enough. According to the Ministry of Transportation, tunnel traffic costs the Metro Vancouver economy close to $70 million annually. It should never have gotten this bad, however. This problem has been well-known for years. Just about every political party has failed when it comes to the George Massey Tunnel. In the early 1990s, the Social Credit government of the day commissioned a report that came up with five options almost identical to the five latest suggestions. In 1995, the NDP government hired consultants to look at new crossings on the Fraser River, with the preferred option being the expansion of the tunnel and Oak Street Bridge. Again, those plans were all but ignored. The Liberals’ “H99” concept called for the twinning of the tunnel 10 years ago, in 2003. But that, too, was put on the back burner, as the $3.3-billion Gateway Program was given priority. As seen earlier this month, the issue of the tunnel replacement is being used as a political football in the upcoming provincial election. But all political parties have a share of the blame for bringing us to this point. It is now up to the local candidates to support one of the five options, and follow through on their commitment should they get elected. Regardless of which party wins the upcoming provincial election, the need for a new crossing will remain. The plan to replace the tunnel can’t be put on the shelf the second the election is over, as has happened so many times before.

that’s their best shot at making a living and being able to support their own families someday, we want to be sure that the opportunities are there,” Findlay said. The difference is that it has to be what an employer needs, not what the student might prefer. It’s a public-private partnership, as we have seen with modern public works. Findlay acknowledged that even with a big push on training, Canada will still need to import foreign workers. In B.C. we are bracing for an unprecedented resource boom, much of it in the B.C. Interior and north. That’s one reason for a $241-million increase over five years to the federal Income Assistance Program for aboriginal reserves. The new money is available only if the community leadership commits to a mandatory training component. They didn’t call it Idle No More, but that’s the gist of it. Of course, no worker or province or band council is required to participate. They have the option to leave the federal money on the table. But the NDP should note that the Canada Job Grant applies to union-run apprenticeship schools, as well as those in community colleges and technical institutes. Saying no isn’t much of a choice. Whatever grand promises the B.C. Liberals and NDP have written into their yet-to-be-released election platforms, they will need to find the money to participate.  Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca The Peace Arch News is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Contamination no trivial matter Editor: Re: Time to rethink water treatment, March 12 letters. In response to the letter by Phil Le Good, some additional information may be helpful for your readers. Disinfection of the White Rock water system is being implemented mainly to provide protection against microbial contamination in the storage and distribution system, and within building plumbing systems. The risk of microbial contamination of the wells is very small, but this is not the main risk. Disinfection with chlorine is only one aspect of a multi-barrier approach to drinking-water safety. There are many kilometres of buried piping in the White Rock distribution system and, like other North American cities, much of it is decades old. Epcor has an ongoing program to monitor, maintain and replace infrastructure as needed, as well as to test the drinking water at various locations within the system. Disinfection will not diminish or bypass those programs. We agree that part of the reason the Walkerton tragedy occurred was that the wells were shallow and vulnerable to contamination. It was a chlorinated drinking-water system; however, the chlorination was not being operated or monitored properly at the time, which contributed to the outbreak. In addition, there are cases where waterborne-disease outbreaks have occurred in non-disinfected, deepwell supplies due to contamination in storage or distribution systems. One example is Alamosa, Colo. in 2008, when a salmonellosis outbreak was caused by contamination of a reservoir by bird fecal matter. There, the wells were deep and protected. The system was not chlorinated at the time of the outbreak; it is now. Other notable examples are Cabool, Mo. in 1989 and Gideon, Mo. in 1993. Both waterbornedisease outbreaks occurred in untreated groundwater systems and involved contamination in the storage and distribution systems. In both cases, illness and deaths occurred as a result of the outbreak. According to a 2001 article in the Journal of the American Water Works Association, which examined waterborne-disease outbreaks in the U.S. and Canada from 1971 to 1998, 30 per cent of the 294 recorded outbreaks were associated with distribution-system problems. Le Good tends to downplay the potential seriousness of White Rock’s boil-water event of 2010. The E. coli detected here indicated the presence of fecal contamination, and the suspected source was bird droppings that entered the Merklin reservoir. The actual numbers of E. coli detected are not really relevant. Any fecal contamination in a drinkingwater system is unacceptable. Fecal contamination can result in illness and death, such as in Alamosa. Epcor takes water safety seriously. It is not a trivial matter. Steve Craik, Epcor water quality and assurance director

n In a letter on the chlorination of White Rock water, I made a couple of simple points which were not understood by Phil Le Good. He waffled about Walkerton as if he was delivering a rebuttal, but there was nothing to rebut. As White Rock and Walkerton are completely different situations, I did not equate them. I used Walkerton as a general and unassailable verity: unchlorinated groundwater can kill. My comment was because some in the community seem to believe groundwater is inherently pure and subject to divine protection. The other simple point I made was that the decision to chlorinate is taken not by the utility but by the

regulating authority; this again to correct a local impression. Phil Le Good chortles triumphantly that no E. coli was found here, which also indicates a misunderstanding of disinfection. There are many other pathogenic microbes, including viruses, against which chlorine protects. A few years back, a town in the Interior discontinued chlorination because of similar loopy logic: no E.coli found. The Health Ministry went nuts and made the town install a residual-chlorine-analyzer at city hall to prove a proper chlorine concentration was maintained 24/7 in the distribution system. I am pleased for the enhanced protection of the health and safety

of my White Rocker friends that chlorination will provide. David Poole, Surrey

Heartfelt appreciation Editor: I am writing to apologize to the lady who walked me home March 15 when I was lost in White Rock. I was so confused and cold that I forgot to thank her or introduce her to the lady who opened the door. I am sorry and give her my heartfelt thanks. Grace Unger, White Rock

White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin addresses a waterfront rally against more coal-train traffic planned for the route.

Concern over coal-train control Editor: Re: More coal trains unacceptable: mayor, March 12. Finally, something to be proud about from government. British Columbians should be outraged over the lack of accountability of the Fraser Port Authority, which does what they want, under a quasi-federal auspices. However, it is not good enough for local politicians who, for years, have thrown their hands up and said they had no power to do anything. When it comes to a U.S. company trying to dump their coal on us, to enable them to make millions by exporting it out of Canada – all the while environmental reviews in the U.S. make it likely untenable they will have access to coal ports at Cherry Point for years, if ever – it requires us to be ever vigilant in this attempt to use Canada for American gains. The health issues, alone, make one cringe. The tons of coal that will blow from the coal cars is a reality. Their claim that they spray it to stop the blowing, mere talk. Get off your hind end and show support for stopping this environmental boondoggle, which will not, if it comes to pass, even create many jobs here. The U.S. has environmental reviews for this kind of thing. Canadians should be demanding this from every level of government. If those trains go through, eight per day and then 16 or more per day the next year, the route they would take would go near more than 30 schools and our hospitals. This is about our health and our kids’ health. What can be more important than that? Steven Faraher-Amidon, Surrey n Re: Cross-party opposition over coal trains, March 19. When the idea to protest the planned increase in coal trains along the shore of ‘the City By The Sea’ by

“ “

council, I followed up with a few suggestions and facts: This is not a matter between the city and Fraser Surrey Docks. That facility is a marine terminal, they don’t care how the cargo gets there. Fraser Surrey Docks is owned by a multi-billion-dollar Australian corporation; why should they listen to White Rock? Here we have U.S.-mined coal, on a U.S-owned railway, transporting coal to an Australian-owned terminal to be loaded on a Panama- or Monrovia-flagged vessel through our country. Hello, Canada! I suggested the affected municipalities should get together and immediately travel to Ottawa to inform the prime minister about these developments. It would also help our cause if the city would arrange, with the permission of the BNSF, to have an independent geometry study carried out. The roadbed and rails were constructed 100 years ago for 100-metre passenger trains, not 14,000-metre-plus freight trains. Surely, our government can step up to the plate and say no! It requires a high-powered and concentrated effort of all people south of the Fraser River. Wolfgang Schmitz, White Rock n Once again, some folks are ranting at BNSF for hauling coal through White Rock. To the best of my knowledge, the railway has been here since 1902. I think anyone living here before 1902 may have a legitimate right to complain, but for everyone else, didn’t you know there was a railroad here before you moved to the Peninsula? Railroads carry freight all across Canada. If you don’t like it, perhaps you should move to someplace with no railroad. But this time, do your due diligence first. And watch out for airports.

Feds won’t block lab merger

Jeff Nagel Black Press

The federal Competition Bureau won’t block the buyout of BC Biomedical by LifeLabs, clearing the way for B.C.’s two big chains of private medical labs to merge into a single giant. The bureau concluded the merger would “not likely result in a substantial lessening or prevention of competition.” It noted diagnostic testing is highly regulated in B.C. through the province’s Medical Services Commission and there was “little evidence of direct competition” between the two firms to date, nor much likelihood of it in the future. BC Biomedical has nearly 800 employees, 500 of them in Surrey, and runs 45 labs across the Lower Mainland that handle 32,000 tests daily. Toronto-based LifeLabs has 80 service centres in B.C. and does 44,000 tests per day. With the acquisition, LifeLabs billings to the Medical Services Plan for government-funded testing will now top $200 million a year. A much smaller share of its revenue comes from privately paid tests. Publicly provided testing in hospitals by B.C.’s regional health authorities will continue to offer an effective alternative to the

Any post-merger move by LifeLabs to consolidate the number of labs could, for example, be closely scrutinized, she confirmed. “If changes were proposed and the commission had a concern that access might be impacted, they do have the authority to take steps to address it,” MacDiarmid said. The deal is expected to close in early April.

hen Edwin Searcy was told further tests were needed following a prostate biopsy two years ago, he wasn’t concerned. The healthy father of four, 57 at the time, had no symptoms of being ill and was even reassured by his doctor that the results would most likely show a clean bill of health. However, when the results came in a month later, the Crescent Beach resident was hit with the news that he had multiple myeloma – a rare and incurable blood cancer that can lead to bone tumours, organ failure and a weakened immune system. “It wasn’t like something had been wrong with me and you’re wondering what it could be. It was out of nowhere. I’ve basically been diagnosed with an increasingly chronic, somewhat manageable but incurable cancer,” Searcy said. After the diagnosis, Searcy had to face another obstacle: breaking the news to his family. “It was definitely a shock and it was hard to understand, because with this type of cancer, everyone’s case is so different,” Searcy’s daughter, Anneke, said. “We wanted to look for answers, but it’s hard to get any.

Semiahmoo Family Place awarded $10,000 for breakfast program

Centre gets healthy boost Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Semiahmoo Family Place has added another day to their nutritious breakfast program, thanks to a financial boost from an unexpected source. When executive director Laurel Tien saw a promotion on her Facebook feed for the Nutella Breakfast Table Fund last year, she decided to apply with no expectation of winning the funds offered to support community foundations offering breakfasts across Canada. At the time, the not-for-profit organization was offering daily breakfasts for families in need during the week, but had no funding to be able to offer something on Saturday. “We had wanted to start a weekend breakfast program for a long time, but being a not-for-profit, we weren’t able to find money for it,” Tien said. “So I fired off an application into the ring.” The promotion, launched by Nutella in September, had more than 400 applicants. Of that number, 20 were selected – including Semiahmoo Family Place. The family resource centre was awarded $10,000 to promote healthy breakfasts and organized a kickoff breakfast to celebrate the launch on March 9. With the funding, the centre will host a Saturday breakfast once a month. The weekend meal features a bit more variety than the weekday offer-

There is also a strong focus on education at all the breakfasts, Tien noted. “Food is a big part of coming together, we have found it offers us another thing to give to new parents coming through the door. Whether they haven’t had a chance to think of themselves as they’ve been focused on children or if they’re reduced-income families, the breakfasts offer the Survey Ad_QrtPg_Leader_BW_P1.pdf really healthy opportunity to try1

something new,” she said. Tien recalled one parent who had never tried yogurt. After Tien’s encouragement, the mom of twins tried some at a breakfast. “She was getting really bored with oatmeal, and this provided that chance to try something new with no risk,” she said. The breakfasts may also include a public health nurse who comes in and offers tips on creating a healthy breakfast right at home. “This funding it has helped in so 13-03-14 11:33 AM many ways, ” Tien said.

Earl Marriott students produce segments for CBC

On-air debut for Peninsula teens Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Two Earl Marriott Secondary students made their broadcasting debut earlier this month. Grade 11 students Jazlyn Melnychuk and Justine Wiklo – both in French immersion – were chosen as youth reporters to create reports for CBC Radio’s French-speaking television show Le Téléjournal Colombie-Britannique, which aired on March 6. The girls were chosen from dozens who applied for the competition, Jeun’Info, which provides opportunities for

aspiring journalists. Each presented a report, with Wiklo speaking about living with her younger brother who has autism and Melnychuk focusing on Canada’s national sport, lacrosse. The memorable experience has sparked an interest in being in the limelight for both teens, with Wiklo considering a career in journalism and Melnychuk planning to pursue politics. To watch the show, visit www.radio-canada.ca/regions/ colombie-britannique/dossiers/ detail.asp?Pk_Dossiers_regionaux=541

This is what they did with the money they SAVED!

Spring into activity Plenty of fun to be had on beautiful Peninsula

F

lowers are blooming, birds are chirping and local residents are out and about enjoying the sun. It’s official – spring has sprung on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. After a long, dreary winter, the warmer temperatures and brighter skies are a welcome treat for people living in White Rock and South Surrey. The nicer weather is also the perfect opportunity to get outside and try something new this spring. Whether you want to incorporate a little extra activity into your life, or meet some new friends, joining a team or club in the community is a great way to achieve both – and have some fun at the same time. Taking the first step towards a more active lifestyle can be as easy as going for a walk, and with beautiful beaches and several rustic walking trails around the community, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to places to go for a jaunt. If you’d like the camaraderie that comes with walking in a group, Crescent United Church runs a weekly walking club called Crescent Walkers. The group meets every Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m. at Camp Alexandra (2916 McBride Ave.) before heading to the beach for a half-hour walk. The group then returns to Camp Alex for coffee and a chance to socialize afterwards. According to Jean Roe, who has been at the helm of the walking group since 1994, the weekly outing offers a great opportunity for community members to

get to know each other and get some exercise. “We welcome anybody to join us,” Roe said, noting there are about 25 walkers who take part in the weekly jaunts, rain or shine. “Crescent Beach is such a wonderful place to walk – all of the parks here are so lovely,” she said. “We’re so lucky to live in a climate like this.” If you’re looking for something a little more exciting than walking, the Semiahmoo Peninsula is home to a couple of great lawn bowling clubs that are on the hunt for new members. This popular sport – which dates all the way back to 13th century London – is played on a 120-foot square of grass called a ‘green.’ The green is divided into rinks that are between 14 and 16 feet wide, and there are usually eight rinks to a green. Often described as being similar to curling, lawn bowling consists of a predetermined number of ‘ends,’ which include the playing of all the bowls on both sides in one direction of the rink. First, a small, white ball called a ‘jack’ is delivered down the surface of the rink and then centered. Players then alternately roll their bowls, the aim being to have their bowl come to a stop as close as possible to the jack. According to Paul Brinton, who is a member of the Mann Park Lawn Bowling Club on North Bluff Road, lawn bowling is a great activity for people young and › see page 19

The season of allergyinduced sniffles and other complications is right around the corner. If you are one of the millions of people affected by seasonal allergies that lead to nasal swelling, sneezing, watery eyes and a scratchy throat, you may not be anticipating the warmer weather as much as others. Allergy research is ongoing, and in the future doctors may be able to prevent allergic reactions from occurring rather than treating the symptoms that ensue. Until then, you will have to work with the remedies that currently exist. These remedies include antihistamines, which can cause dangerous interactions with other medications and may cause drowsiness. These side effects can be dangerous for use in seniors. Consider these other options instead. • Drink plenty of fluids. Although liquids can’t wash the allergens out of your system, water, juice and clear broths can

Check weather reports for the levels of particulates in the air and stay indoors if they are high. Keep away from tall grasses and places with a lot of foliage. • Use the air conditioning. Rather than keeping the windows wide open, use an air conditioner and dehumidifier to filter the air coming inside of the

house and ensuring it is cool and dry. • Head to the beach. If you want to spend time outdoors, areas by the ocean will have pollen counts that are much lower than in mountainous areas. • Dry clothes indoors. Line-dried clothes may smell fresh, but they can bring molds and pollens indoors and exacerbate allergies. • Shower frequently. After being outdoors, take a shower to rinse off any allergens clinging to hair and skin.

The Mann Park Lawn Bowling Club is getting ready to open for the spring season.

Lawn bowling fun, social game › from page 17 old looking to try something new. “It’s quite fun, it’s very social and you get to meet lots of people,” Brinton said. “It’s also really good exercise, as well as being very inexpensive.” Mann Park is home to about 180 bowlers, and offers various levels of play from recreational to competitive. While the club is busy getting ready for its official opening – set for April 27 – they will also be hosting an open house at the park’s clubhouse on April 13 at 10 a.m. Any new players who are interested in finding out more are encouraged to attend the open house, and Brinton noted the club will be also hosting several days of coaching at the end of April for newcomers to the game. Interested members can visit the club’s website at www.mannparklbc.com or call 604-531-0833.

Another local bowling club over on Dolphin Street – the White Rock Bowling Club – is also looking forward to it’s spring opening day on April 20. The White Rock Bowling Club runs year-round on its artificial green, although according to vice-president Bill Torrance, not every member braves the winter weather. “Some of our members have been bowling all winter, but not me,” Torrance laughed. “I think it’s more of a summer sport.” According to Torrance, spring is the ideal time for new players to visit the club, as they will be offering coaching to those who want to try the game. “We have trained coaches that can teach you the game properly, that way if you don’t like it, you don’t have to join.” Anyone interested in finding out more can visit www.whiterockbowlingclub. com or call 604-536-2616.

Mar. 26 - 30, 2013 ARIES

LIBRA

Aries, a mountain of responsibility has put pressure on you. Although you cannot shy away from what has to be done, you can put a smile on your face when tackling your tasks.

Libra, a chance encounter has you rethinking what you want to accomplish in the next few weeks. You are second-guessing all of your plans because of this surprise.

TAURUS

SCORPIO

Taurus, something special will take place in the next few days and you will be on hand to experience all of it. Magical moments are to be made with a romantic partner.

A decision you made could have long-term effects, Scorpio. You'll probably find that you have to do some damage control this week to get things back on track.

GEMINI

SAGITTARIUS

Gemini, you may want to think before you speak when a friend asks for advice. The truth might hurt, so it could be wise to keep quiet for the time being.

Sagittarius, all indications point to a monumental change in your life. Wait to see what occurs and put big decisions or vacations on hold.

CAPRICORN

CANCER

Capricorn, it can be tempting to toss away your responsibilities and simply have fun. But then you will be so backed up it could take quite a while to dig out from under your to-do list.

Cancer, a stroke of inspiration leads you on a creative journey. Things will calm down toward the end of the week when you have to focus on more tangible things.

AQUARIUS

LEO

Aquarius, just when you need a bit of sunshine, a satisfying piece of good news arrives. Your spouse or partner plays a significant role in this positive development.

Leo, someone you know wants to step things up to another level, but you may not be ready to take that kind of plunge. Talk over your feelings in a kind way.

PISCES

VIRGO

Pisces, a tangled web is forming around you, but with quick wit you will manage to steer clear of the melee.

Virgo, family has been on your mind lately, and you may feel it's best to spend the majority of your free time at home rather than out. Make good use of your time.

Don’t be fooled by how young she is, Chelsea Badr, stylist and owner of Hidden Gem Hair Studio, has more than 11 years of experience in the industry. The professionally-trained stylist and entrepreneur started out as a shampoo girl and assistant while in school. By the end of graduation, she had shown enough talent to be a full-time stylist. After four years of working in salons, Chelsea focused on creating her own business. Based out of her own home for five years, the positive response spurred her to open her own business in April 2011. “Within a month of deciding to buy, I had it up and running,” she said. “In less than a year, I had each booth rented out and almost tripled my clientele.” Recently, for the second consecutive year, Chelsea was nominated for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award at the 2012 White Rock South Surrey Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards, an honour she has worked hard to achieve. “I strive to set myself apart by not doublebooking clients, and by giving myself plenty of time for each service,” she said. “I want my clients to feel and look their best when they leave my salon.” Despite her wealth of experience, Chelsea continues her education in the field, upgrading her tools and techniques to better serve her clientele. She is the go-to person for colour, precision cuts, extensions, perms and Brazilian smoothing treatments called Kera Straight. “I believe in using top quality products, that’s why I choose Joico for colour service. Joico is known as the healthy hair company, and that’s really important to me,”said Chelsea, who was an educator with Joico and is a colour specialist. “Kevin Murphy and Moroccan Oil are some of the other lines I carry.” Most of all, she is passionate about her work. “I love, love, love my career and I am so excited that I am living my dream right now,” she said. “I want to thank the community, the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce, my family and most importantly my clientele for their support and contributions to my success. I am very excited to be celebrating my second year in business and look forward to serving  both current and new clients for many more years to come.”

Outages put thousands in the dark Power was returned to thousands of homes and businesses hours after a series of outages hit the Semiahmoo Peninsula last week. A nearly three-hour power outage spanning from west of Flower Road to south of 23A Avenue, encompassed portions of Crescent Beach and Sunnyside Park just before 3 p.m., affecting nearly 5,000 BC Hydro clients last Wednesday. Shortly after 3 p.m., an outage struck the area

east of 146 Street, south of 22 Avenue, north of Roper and west of 156A Street, putting more than 3,700 homes and businesses in the dark until just before 8 p.m. Motor vehicle accident was the reported cause of the outages, according to the BC Hydro website. Earlier that day, nearly 3,000 homes and businesses were without power for just over an hour, following a tree or branch falling down across the wires.

Watchers forecast nearly 4.8 million Fraser River salmon

SOUNDS

Sockeye stock rebuilding

SMILE

“It’s going to depend on how many pinks there are and how much interest there is [from the commercial fleet].”

Fraser sockeye watchers see stock rebuilding. more than 30 million sockeye in 2010, meaning enough fish spawned to assure at least a healthy run. The bulk of this year’s sockeye are summer-run salmon, concentrated in two stocks – the Quesnel and Chilko lake systems. Also coming back this year are pink salmon, which run on a two-

year cycle. Nearly nine million pinks are forecast to return – below average and down from the last couple of runs of more than 15 million. Still, Lapointe said there are good odds of some commercial fishing for pinks, which typically fetch around 40 cents a pound, compared to $1.50 to $2 for sockeye.

The provincial government this month declared Pacific salmon to be B.C.’s official fish emblem, in recognition of its high ecological, cultural and economic significance. The designation captures all Pacific salmonids – sockeye, chinook, coho, pink and chum, plus oceangoing steelhead and cutthroat trout. “With the epic migration of Pacific salmon from B.C.’s rivers and streams to the ocean and back, there is no symbol more iconic of British Columbia,” Environment Minister Terry Lake said, adding they’re integral to First Nations and often seen as indicators of overall ecosystem and wildlife health.

Salmon watchers are hoping this is the year the troubled Fraser River sockeye run turns the corner on its disastrous collapse four years ago. If returns come in as forecast, nearly 4.8 million sockeye will make their way up the Fraser this summer. That’s still well short of the longer term average of 8.6 million for this part of the fouryear cycle. But it would be a huge improvement from 2009, when more than 10 million salmon were expected and just 1.5 million arrived, prompting the federal government to appoint the Cohen Commission into the decline. “Hopefully we’ll get a run that’s much improved relative to 2009,” said Mike Lapointe, chief biologist for the Pacific Salmon Commission. “If the run returns bigger and we’re able to get some rebuilding, that will be very important for the sockeye moving forward. It will be definitely be more than what we had in the parent year that produced it.” Nobody is guaranteeing a commercial fishery yet. The pre-season forecast shows a onein-four chance of a Fraser sockeye run below 2.7 million, which would likely rule out commercial fishing, and a one-in-10 chance it will be as bad as 2009. But after the Cohen inquiry failed to come up with a single cause or solution to the slide, observers like Lapointe would be happy to continue to see an improving trendline. “We definitely did better in 2012 than 2008, we did better in 2011 than in 2007. If we can do better again in 2013 from 2009 we’ll have gotten some rebuilding off of those three very low years.” Last year’s sockeye return, while up, wasn’t enough to allow commercial fishing or sports angling. There are no concerns about 2014 – next year marks the return of the huge Adams River run, which came back with a stunning return of

The sounds of Dixieland and retro jazz, presented for listening and dancing by the White Rock Traditional Jazz Society, continue each Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240 (2643 128 St.). Upcoming groups include the Louisiana Joymakers (March 31). Admission is $8 (members) and $10 (nonmembers). Memberships ($15) are available at the door.

Fools Leon Tolchinski has landed a teaching job in an idyllic Russian hamlet. But when he sees people sweeping dust into their houses, and milking cows upside down to get cream, he begins to realize the village is under a curse – of chronic stupidity. To complicate matters he falls in love with his student, Lenya Zubritsky, daughter of the hamlet’s doctor – only to find she is being pursued by a local aristocrat, evil Count Gregor. That’s the premise of Neil Simon’s comedy Fools, upcoming production of White Rock Players Club (April 10-27, Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd.), directed by Ryan Mooney (Lend Me A Tenor, Little Shop of Horrors). Featured players are Hunter Golden (Leon), Sheila Greentree (Lenya), Ryan Johnston (Dr. Zubritsky), Melissa Paras (Sophia Zubritsky), Scott Milne (Count Gregor). Martin Perrin plays the role of Magistrate, while well-known scenestealers Ray Van Ieperen, Paul Ferancik, Clive Ramroop and Helen Volkow have ample scope for winning big laughs as spectacularly dense villagers Snetsky, Slovitch, Mishkin and Yenchna.

Poetry event Can one person make a difference? Can a small group affect change? That’s the question posed by Catalyst for Change: Art in Action! a special evening of readings, personal experiences, art and music by and about people working to create a better world through the arts, Saturday, April 6, 7:30 p.m. at the Semiahmoo Arts space in Centennial Park. Noted author and poet Penn Kemp has chosen Semiahmoo Arts’ literary series: Readings by the Salish Sea, for the inaugural West Coast launch of her new anthology, Jack Layton: Art in Action. Kemp has collected anecdotes about how Jack Layton – her brother-in-law – inspired people from coast to coast to work to create a better world. An honorary life member of the League of Canadian Poets, Kemp is a recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, and served as the inaugural Poet Laureate of London, Ontario. Rounding out the evening, local advocates who have used the arts as a catalyst for change will make brief presentations about a variety social and environmental initiatives that have played out at the local, regional and provincial level. As well, Susan Keeping will be on hand to introduce Penn Kemp. There will be opportunities for the audience to engage interactively – with the speakers and in other ways. A no-host bar, art exhibition, decorative elements, and music will add ambience, and Kemp’s book will be available for purchase at the event. In addition to the Kemp event, there is a change of date, for this month only, for the regular Open Mic: Zero to 360 at Pelican Rouge Coffee Company, Central Plaza. From the second Thursday of the month, Zero to 360 moves to the first (April 4), and in honour of Poetry Month, readers are being asked to present poetry, rather than other forms of literature. Also coming up on Thursday, April 25, is From The Edge of the Fraser: readings by Catherine Owen and Warren Dean Fulton. For further information, visit www. semiahmooarts.com

BCHL team just one win away from conference finals

Eagles jump out to early lead on Chiefs Nick Greenizan

I

Sports Reporter

n the 1977 classic movie Slapshot, Charlestown Chiefs goaltender Denis Lemieux – in a bid to find out who’s in charge – famously asks “Who owns the Chiefs?” And while the answer to the goalie’s question wasn’t the Surrey Eagles, they certainly had their way with the Chiefs – Chilliwack, not Charlestown – last weekend, winning twice to stake themselves to a 2-0 lead in their best-of-five secondround series. On Friday, Surrey out-gunned the Chiefs 4-0, and followed up Saturday at South Surrey Arena with a come-from-behind 5-4 win. The Eagles are now just one win away from advancing to the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference finals. Game 3 of the series shifted to Chilliwack Monday night, but the game was played Trevor Cameron after press deadline. Surrey Eagles In Game 1, the Eagles scored early and often, taking a 1-0 lead just 46 seconds into the game when Brady Shaw scored his third goal of the playoffs. Demico Hannoun – who had a pair – and Trevor Cameron also bulged the twine behind Chilliwack netminder Mitch Gilliam before the first intermission. With a 4-0 lead, the Eagles went into more of a defensive mode for the remaining two periods, as neither team was able to score over the final 40 minutes. “We had a really good start in the first, obviously, scoring the four goals,” said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart. “And after that, we just played a real simple game with the lead, and kind of held on.” Michael Stenerson picked up a pair of assists, and goaltender Michael Santaguida picked up his league-best second shutout of the post-season, stopping all 35 shots he faced. One of his best saves came in the second frame when he stopped Chiefs’ Ryan Donohoe from in close, and Josh Hansen also hit the post in the same period. The only negative for Surrey was the team’s misfiring power-play, which went 0-for-10. The Eagles scored first Saturday, too –

Surrey Eagles forward Nic Pierog celebrates a goal during the third period of Saturday’s game against the Chilliwack Chiefs. Cameron converted an Adam Tambellini pass at just past the eight-minute mark of the first period – but unlike Friday’s affair, the lead didn’t last. Chilliwack scored three times in the second period – two off the stick of Donohoe, including one short-handed – and Austin Plevy added the other. Cameron again scored for the Eagles, who trailed 3-2 heading into the third period. In the third, it was Cameron again who

drew the Birds even, completing his hat trick 7:30 into the third period when his shot from the slot beat Gilliam. Surrey took the lead five minutes later when Nic Pierog slid the puck into the net during a goal-mouth scramble. Stenerson – who is third on the team with seven points in six playoff games – and Chillwack’s Spencer Graboski – who scored with his team’s net empty – traded goals in the final four minutes but the home team

couldn’t get the equalizer. “We knew they’d come out really hungry, and they’re a very good team – they only had two less wins than us during the regular season,” Erhart said. “But we’ve come back from being down a goal before, and there was no panic in our game. “Going into the third, we just wanted to win the period, and that way we’d at least get it to overtime.

With the series shifting to Chilliwack for the next two games, Erhart said the game plan would remain the same. “Hopefully, for us, nothing changes,” he said. “We’ve beat them at home twice since Christmas, but they’re a good team. I assume it’ll be another good, close game.” If Chilliwack wins Monday to extend the series, Game 4 would be tonight (Tuesday) in Chilliwack. Game 5, if necessary, would be Wednesday in South Surrey. In the other Coastal Conference semifinal, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs lead the Victoria Grizzlies 2-0. Game 3 was played Monday night in Victoria.

CHILDREN 83

BOYACK, Richard William May 24, 1919 - March 21, 2013 Richard was born in Calgary, AB and farmed for many years with his father, George, and son, George, in the Keoma area. Richard had great pride in his service as flight engineer with the RCAF during WWII. He loved to travel in his RV, socialize over a cup of coffee with his many friends, and discuss the newest models of cars, trucks and tractors. He lived a long and fruitful life with many accomplishments of which we can be proud. Richard was predeceased by his beloved wife, Barbara and his brother, Alan. He is survived by his four children: Isabel (Bill) Hay, Gwen (Jeff) Mackenzie, George (Shirl), and Dave, six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In lieu of owers donations can be made to: Peach Arch Hospital Foundation, 15521 Russell Ave, White Rock, BC, V4B 9Z9.

KIRKWOOD, Lloyd Nov. 18, 1920 - March 18, 2013

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our husband, father and grandfather. He will be greatly missed by his wife Edith, daughter Cheryl (Sterling), grandchildren Brendan, Jennifer (Jason) and great grandchildren Elouise and Simone. A Celebration of Lloyd’s life will be held at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, March 26th at the Church Of The Holy Trinity, Foster St. & Roper Ave, White Rock In lieu of owers, donations may be made to The Alzheimer’s Society.

CHURCH, Mollie, 89, passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital on March 18. She was born in Cannington Manor, Saskatchewan, the oldest child of Ed and Doris Maher. When her parents moved to White Rock in the 1940’s Mollie wasn’t far behind. In 1947 she married Jack Church a Navy sailor she met before leaving Saskatchewan. Together with their daughter they spent 20 years in California before returning to this area to be closer to their families. Mollie worked in banking for most of her working years which may explain why her business affairs are perfectly in order. With her mild temperament, loud laugh and sassy sense of humour Mollie maintained many connections. She played bridge with a passion, volunteered with the Peace Arch Auxiliary, the Stroke Club, the Osteoporosis group, CWL, ran her condo association for many years and stayed in regular touch with her banking friends. She always worked efficiently, without fanfare and got the job done. Mollie was dearly loved and will be sadly missed by her daughter Marcia and son-inlaw Dale Swanson, granddaughters Shayla (Matt Parks) and Rayna (Connor Donnelly), brother Bill Maher, niece Cheri Sutherland, nephew Alex Lagasse, brother-in-law Larry Church, as well as cousins Nora Zelter, Barb and Brian Haynen, Madge and Albert Cantin, Elaine Jensen and many other loving relatives and friends . A heartfelt thank you to the kind and capable nursing staff at the Peace Arch Hospital and Morgan Place. Also, thank you to family and friends for the very attentive support during all of Mollie’s trials and tribulations. Unfortunately, we missed the Peace Arch News deadline to announce the funeral. It was held on Friday, March 22 at the Star of the Sea Catholic Church in White Rock. If interested, please consider a donation to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation. Condolences may be offered at www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522

Nemesvari, O. Ervin passed away peacefully at home at the age of 90 surrounded by loving friends. Ervin immigrated to Canada in 1957 under the Hungary Revolution. He made a hard working successful life for himself in the Yukon, Vancouver and eventually White Rock for the last 30 years. Ervin’s cremated remains will be laid to rest in Budapest next to his parents. Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522

WATTS, Barbara Fawns Barbara Fawns Watts (PattĂŠ) born in Ramsgate, Kent, England on December 20, 1920 passed away peacefully March 18th, 2013 at the age of 92. Barbara was predeceased by her husband of 48 years, Douglas Lorne Watts. She is survived by her daughters Deanna Pedersen (John Sola); LaVerne Hogg (Gordon), her grandchildren Tracey LaMarre (Rob); Michelle Pedersen; Blair Hogg (Tiffany) and her great grandchildren Alexa, Ray, Bryson, Creeghan and Ava. The family would like to thank the staff (2nd floor) of the Dr. Al Hogg Pavilion for taking such good care of her and for their patience and compassion. To fulfill Barbara’s wishes, there will not be a service but the next time you think of her, please raise your glass and give a toast to “Barb the Dancerâ€?.

William R. MacGregor October 2, 1926 March 30, 2013 Bill our loving father, passed away peacefully on March 30, 2013 with family and friends by his side, at the age of 86 after a long battle with Parkinson’s. He is survived by his beloved wife Mary; daughter Bonnie (John); son Bill (Carmen); grandchildren Alison, Sarah, Michael, Humberto, Carmelita, & Cameron; great grandchildren Ashton & Alex. Dad was a loving husband and devoted father. He enjoyed fishing, hockey, softball and building in his workshop, making many items for all until his final years. He was a remarkable friend to many and will be forever missed. A celebration of Dad’s life will be held on Saturday March 30, 2013, 2:00pm at Valley View Funeral Home, 14660-72nd Avenue, Surrey BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Parkinson Society British Columbia will be much appreciated. For online condolences, please go to www.valleysurrey.ca.
